Juice Jam Music Festival Is Sept. 8
A new fall semester marks students’ return to campus and the return of Juice Jam, a combined music festival, art showcase and silent disco hosted by University Union, a student-run organization that serves as the University’s official student programming platform. Each year, University Union invites a mix of well-known and new artists to perform. This year’s picks include 21 Savage, EARTHGANG, FLETCHER, Mt. Joy and Kilo Kish.
Juice Jam 2019 will be held at Skytop Field on South Campus this Sunday, Sept. 8 from 12:15 to 6 p.m. University Union will host shuttle buses to Skytop Field from College Place and Stadium Place beginning from 12 p.m. and throughout the evening. There will be six silent disco DJ sets beginning at 1:20 p.m. and food available for sale via cash, card or SUpercard FOOD throughout the event.
Students with a valid SU/ESF I.D. may purchase tickets for $20. Please note, only cash will be accepted for all ticket transactions. Ticket trucks will be available next to the Quad in front of Carnegie Library from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6, and Saturday, Sept. 7, and again on Sunday, Sept. 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets will be available for purchase at the gate of Juice Jam until 4 p.m.
Sarah Ross Cappella, associate director in the Office of Student Activities and consultant for University Union, has worked alongside students to host Juice Jam for several years.
“The 2019 lineup is very diverse and there’s something for everyone. This year we have more experiential activities, including the return of silent disco and a featured tent from FujiFilm where students can explore Instax cameras,” says Ross Cappella. “I think the best part of Juice Jam is that it’s not just music, there are things to do all afternoon!”
